GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T207477: 'All public logs' for a given page lists the 'page curation log' reviews, but not 'patrol log' reviews.

This is really an issue in the MediaWiki core rather than the PageTriage extension. I will upload a patch for this.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T71047: Develop countermeasures to the merge page histories attack.

In reply to the comment by the banned user about not allowing revisions from different page IDs to be restored at once, there is now a task for this: T193690. "Prevention is better than cure." Although that task prevents histories from being easily merged via Special:Undelete, it does not help "cure contaminated histories" by splitting them to restore them to good condition.

This is more of a MySQL bug than a MediaWiki bug. Anyway, this bug was actually originally reported in 2003 as Bug #199. And 14 years later, it has been fixed in MySQL 8.0 with WL#6204. So, I'm closing this as resolved.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T135851: Preserve InnoDB table auto_increment on restart.

-1 disagreeing with the solution.

This can happen also on master failover-which your solution will not protect against. The right fix is not a complex server-side fix, but to not delete rows and move them around to a different table to start with, specially when there are references to it still around. Marking them as deleted and censor (if needed for privacy reasons), but never delete rows. This prevents existing replication issues on deletion and undeletion of items.

I am not *against* implementing this, but I want a more general solution.

So my proposal is:

  1. document this limitation on mediawiki.org and recommend "best practices"
  2. try to go to a model in core that follow these practices

    This was directly related to T112637, although this issue was not specifically mentioned there, and requires specific attention.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T20493: Unify various deletion systems.

The problems with the current undeletion interface will be solved with T193690, which also deals with fixing problems with rev_parent_id and ar_parent_id fields. The same page ID will never be used for more than one deleted page title, nor for both a deleted and an existing page. Also, the ar_namespace, ar_title, and ar_page_id fields will all be moved to a new pagearchive table as pa_namespace, pa_title, and pa_page_id; and the archive table will get a new ar_pa_id column.

I have renamed the task and rearranged the description to make it more focused on the alternative proposal. The new interface for undeletion will distinguish page IDs more clearly than the current interface, which lists all deleted revisions regardless of the value of their ar_page_id fields. It would also be simpler and easier to use. Instead of selecting revisions, all one has to do is to select a page ID to be undeleted and then click the "Restore" button.

Change 441045 was initially targeted incorrectly to this task, but it has since been fixed to target T197685 instead. So I have removed the "Patch for Review" project and reviewer gerritbot, for now. Also, we actually already have a script named populateParentId for populating null rev_parent_id fields. We just needed that script to allow fixing existing rev_parent_id fields, as well as populating or fixing ar_parent_id fields.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T193690: RFC: How should we fix the undeletion system?.

Doing a selective undeletion on a Wikidata item is pointless, as Wikidata items cannot be moved nor can deleted Wikidata items be "recreated". The only way to make a deleted Wikidata item become blue-linked again is to undelete it. Existing Wikidata items should never have any deleted revisions. If there are any existing Wikidata items that have deleted revisions remaining due to a previous selective undeletion, then a bot should undelete them all as soon as possible (ASAP) before the alternative proposal gets approved.
